I recently stumbled upon Paperman on my Facebook news feed. This animated short film was sweet without being cheesy. I liked the simple, minimalist black and white style. It was very interesting to see that the only pop of color you’d see is the red lipstick. I liked the way they detailed the “light” and wind movements. I also very much liked the flow and the progression of the background music.
I found it amusing that he wasn’t asked to resign that day.

A very beautiful short film wherein you don’t need to hear words to understand the feelings they want to convey. All they needed is paper.
